You know you were wondering what the difference between these three new Curves were. Unfortunately though, the differences are limited as they are pretty much identical devices. Regardless we have some specs for all of you tech savvy people that can understand half of this stuff. Unless otherwise indicated, the specs are the same for all three devices.

Think of these three devices like this: the Curve 9350 is a CDMA (think Sprint and Verizon) BlackBerry. The Curve 9360 is a GSM (think AT&T and T-Mobile) BlackBerry. The Curve 9370 can be both CDMA and GSM enabled. It isn't so strange for RIM to release three identical devices with few differences as evidenced by their first Curve series. There 5 (five) Curves (8300, 8310, 8320, 8330 and eventually the 8350i) that all looked pretty much identical. This Curve series was extremely popular. It seems Research In Motion is thinking along the lines of more phones = more sales. Hopefully for the BlackBerry-maker this will pan out the way they envision it.
